RECIPE: Turmeric Hot Toddy (for cold/flu relief)

RECIPE: Turmeric Hot Toddy
Since making up a batch of turmeric paste last week I’ve been adding it to my morning ritual of drinking hot lemon water. I usually add a dash of cayenne and ginger powder and now I’m adding a teaspoon of turmeric paste as well. In the midst of my current obsession with turmeric and its amazing health benefits, I’ve been collecting recipes via Pinterest. When I stumbled across this recipe for a Turmeric Hot Toddy I knew I had to try it.

I usually only crave a hot toddy when I’m sick with a cold since the drink is known to ease the aches and pains of the common cold. But since my morning ritual tea is so similar to a hot toddy (minus the booze), I decided to give it a try and enjoy a hot mug on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

RECIPE: Turmeric Hot Toddy

How does a Hot Toddy ease cold symptoms exactly?

• For hundreds of years brandy has been used as a traditional remedy for the common cold/flu. The natural warming properties of brandy, mixed with its relaxing quality that induces healthy sleep and the antibacterial nature of alcohol, together creates a much needed boost for the immune system. You can read more on the health benefits of brandy here.
• Lemon and honey can relieve a sore throat, help loosen congestion and prevent dehydration.
• Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, a natural blood purifier, and is antioxidant and antiseptic.

Note: Even though I do enjoy the cold/flu relief felt when sipping a hot toddy, it’s not the only remedy I turn to when I’m feeling sick. It’s also a good idea to get lots of rest and drink plenty of fluids. Don’t forget that alcohol actually dehydrates the body, so think of a hot toddy as a way to pamper yourself when you’re feeling sick and drink in moderation.

RECIPE: Golden Milk + the health benefits of Turmeric

RECIPE: Golden Milk + the health benefits of Turmeric

As I continue my research and spend more time with the wonderful Indian/Asian spice, Turmeric, I love and learn more and more about it. Known in Sanskrit as the “Golden Goddess”, turmeric is often used in sacred Hindu ceremonies. Turmeric has been a staple in Indian food traditions for millennia and has at least 4,000 years of use in Ayurvedic, traditional Chinese, and Siddhic medicinal traditions. Ayurvedic practitioners believe that turmeric emanates the energy of the divine feminine and helps grant prosperity.

Health benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma Longa plant and is a member of the ginger family. It’s most known for it’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties, and is also a natural blood purifier, analgesic and antiseptic. The bioactive compound, Curcumin is what gives turmeric its bright yellow/orange color and is an effective topical antibacterial agent. It has stronger antioxidant properties than vitamin E, is anti-tumor, antibacterial and antimicrobial. It’s also known to assist in liver detox and has been used for centuries to promote healing of the gut, stomach and liver.

Note: Because it’s been found that turmeric is rapidly metabolized by the liver and intestines, its medicinal properties may not be as effective unless it is consumed with black pepper, which has been found to increase the absorption of curcumin by 2000%.

RECIPE: Golden Milk + the health benefits of Turmeric

So, not only is turmeric a vibrant natural dye perfect for using this time of year, it has amazing health benefits too. How can you not love this spice!? Turmeric can be consumed dried, cooked, or raw, and has a slightly peppery, mildly bitter and earthy flavor. There are many ways to incorporate turmeric into your cooking and it can also be drank as a tea. A common method I found in my research is to make what’s called, Golden Milk. And to make it, you must first create a turmeric paste…

Three Healthy Drink Recipes

RECIPE: 3 Healthy Drinks #lemon #turmeric #acv #ginger
This year it seems like I’ve caught a minor cold (lasting about 3 days) every other week! After the second one runny nose kicked in, I knew it was high time to bring out my cold fighting, immune boosting, and homemade concoctions. It’s so easy to ignore feeling tired and rundown, or push through daily aches and pains. My struggle with chronic pain has taught me to pay attention when my body is trying to tell me something and give it the help it needs to heal itself.

I have three drink recipes that I always turn to when my body is in need of some TLC. Each drink contains ingredients that have natural healing benefits and can be drunk hot or cold.

For Alkalinity & Digestion

RECIPE: 3 Healthy Drinks #lemon #turmeric #acv #ginger
Hot water with lemon and cayenne is my go-to drink and something I have almost every morning when I wake up. Drinking lemon water helps to promote an alkaline state in your body and can kick-start your digestion and help your body rid itself of acids.

Benefits of Lemon & Cayenne

– Both lemon and cayenne have anti-fungal, immune boosting, and detoxification properties
– Lemon is a rich source of vitamin C, helps with digestion, destroys bacteria, balances pH levels and cleanses the system

RECIPE: 3 Healthy Drinks #lemon #turmeric #acv #ginger

Benefits of Turmeric & Ginger

– Turmeric and ginger are both cancer-fighting, reduces inflammation, aids in digestion

RECIPE: Sweet Slumber Tea Blend

Sweet Slumber Tea Blend #recipe #diy #herbs
I am a big tea drinker, especially on cold winter days when I want to stay warm. This tea is one of my favorites- a delicious herbal blend of chamomile, peppermint, lavender and roses. I made up a big batch of this loose leaf blend to enjoy this winter and also to give as gifts.

Sweet Slumber Tea Blend #recipe #diy #herbs

To make this blend I first acquired the herbs I wanted for the tea. I always use high-quality, organic herbs purchased from my local apothecary. Mountain Rose is also a great online resource. Then I combined equal parts of the chamomile, peppermint, lavender and rosebuds in a small bowl and stirred to combine.

Sweet Slumber Tea Blend #recipe #diy #herbs

There are tons of creative ways to package tea. You can simply fill a mason jar, or fill your own loose leaf tea bags, tie with some baker’s twine and add a cute tag.

I gave up coffee about a year ago, so I like to make my own Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte instead. It’s so delicious and the perfect treat for autumn evenings.

RECIPE: Blackberry + Pineapple Sage Soda

RECIPE: Blackberry + Pineapple Sage Soda #drink #summer
I’m still hooked on summer blackberries this week, and as much as I may want to, I cannot live off of pie alone. I decided use some of the leftover berries to make my own syrup so that I could enjoy a refreshing homemade blackberry soda! And because I have an abundance of pineapple sage in my garden, I couldn’t resist adding some into this recipe for a slightly herbal flavor.

Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • ½ cup of honey
  • ½ cup of water
  • 6-10 fresh pineapple sage leaves
  • 1 pound fresh blackberries
  • Ice
  • Sparkling water
  • Extra blackberries and sage leaves for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Combine the honey and the water in a saucepan over medium heat. Give it a stir as it begins to heat up. Once it reaches the point just before boiling, shut off the burner and remove the mixture from the heat.
  2. Add the whole sage leaves and the blackberries to the hot honey mixture and stir. Allow the berries to macerate in the honey syrup until the mixture has cooled significantly and the berries have broken down a bit.
  3. Using an immersion blender (or a normal blender or food processor), blend the entire mixture (including the sage leaves) on high until it is well combined and looks uniform in color and texture. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the blackberry seeds. You should have about 2 cups of smooth, thick syrup.
  4. To make the sodas, fill a cup with ice and add some of the blackberry and sage syrup to taste (I tend to like my soda on the sweeter side, so I use about ¼ cup. But a few tablespoons would be perfect for a milder flavor soda).
  5. Top with sparkling water, stir, and garnish with extra blackberries and a few pineapple sage leaves.

RECIPE: Pineapple Sage Mojitos + Tiki Snack Mix

RECIPE: Pineapple Sage Mojitos + Tiki Snack Mix #summer #drink #cocktail #party

August is my favorite summer month. The first reason is that it’s my birthday month (duh) and it’s the final official month of summer here in Portland. We’ve got just one more month of hot weather (hopefully we’ll have more than that, but there’s no gaurantee in the Pacific Northwest), so we’ve got to make the most of it and have some summer fun! I consider August to be the time to check off anything that’s still on my summer bucket list.

One thing that’s been on my list is to make a cocktail using the pineapple sage I’ve been growing in my garden. The leaves smell just like pineapple and the plant produces hot pink flowers when it blooms. We served up our drinks in our favorite tiki glasses and sipped them in the backyard. Yummmm…

RECIPE: Lavender & Lemonade

RECIPE: Sparkling Lavender Lemonade + Lavender Creme Cookies

Lavender and lemon are two flavors that remind me of sunshine and daydreaming, the perfect summer combination. A few months ago, I bought some dried lavender in bulk and knew had to find creative ways to use it up (so far I’ve used it in craft projects like Sachet Pillows and ‘Cat Nap’ Eye Pillows). I finally got around to researching different ways to cook with it and chose to make Sparkling Lavender Lemonade and delicate Lavender Creme Cookies for the perfect afternoon treat.

The Sparkling Lavender Lemonade was quite easy to make. I used leftover lemonade syrup from the Lemon Shandies I made recently along with homemade lavender simple syrup. Both of these syrups turned out delicious! I especially like being able to make my own drink to suit my desired sweetness and flavor.

RECIPE: Lavender Creme Cookies
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp + 2 tsp dried lavender
  • ½ cup butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 pkg. (11 oz.) white chocolate chips
  • Violet food coloring
Instructions
  1. TO MAKE THE DOUGH: first preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine flour and 2 tbsp lavender in small bowl and set aside. Using a mixer on medium-high speed, beat the butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add honey and sugar; beat until blended. Beat in egg until combined, then gradually beat in the flour mixture until combined. Place dough in refrigerator to chill, about 20 minutes.
  2. TO ROLL OUT THE COOKIES: on a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/16" thickness. I used a 2½" scallop cookie cutter to cut out the cookies.Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Then, using a smaller scallop cookie cutter (about 1½" in diameter), cut out centers of half the cookies. You want an even number of solid scallop rounds and scallop rounds with the center cut out. Transfer cookies to baking sheets and bake 5-10 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on pan for 3 minutes, then transfer to rack. Cool completely.
  3. TO PREPARE THE FILLING: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine cream and 2 tsp of lavender. Microwave on high in 30-second intervals until hot. Let stand 5 minutes.Place white chocolate chips in another microwave-safe bowl. Pour cream through a fine mesh sieve over the chocolate; discard lavender in sieve. Microwave mixture on high, in 30-second intervals until chocolate is melted (about 1-2 minutes). Whisk in food coloring until smooth. Refrigerate until spreadable, about 15-30 minutes.
  4. TO ASSEMBLE COOKIES: Spread about 2 tsp of the filling over each solid round cookie. Top with cutout cookies; gently press together. Store in airtight containers.

RECIPE: Lemon Shandy

RECIPE: Lemon Shandy #beer #summer #drink

Hope you all are enjoying the first official days of summer! Today I wanted to share one of my new favorite summer drinks, the Lemon Shandy. It’s a combination of lemonade and light beer, which may sound a little odd to some, but I promise it is refreshing and delicious. My boyfriend, James and I first fell in love with Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy, but it’s a bit pricey to buy at the store so I thought I’d try making my own version.

This recipe turned out great and can be easily adjusted to suit your tastes. The key I think is to make your own lemonade concentrate. That way, you can add as much or as little as you want to your own beer.

DIY: Hand-Painted Mason Jar Mugs #marthastewart #glassware #paint

With summer in full swing, I’m looking forward to hosting backyard get-togethers. I’ve been on the lookout for some fun, affordable glassware to serve my homemade cocktails in and was excited to discover this fun DIY over on Soul Makes blog. I found mason jar mugs at my local Dollar Tree, which made for a fun, budget friendly craft project.

DIY: Hand-Painted Mason Jar Mugs #marthastewart #glassware #paint

Supplies:

• Mason Jar Mug (or other glassware)
Martha Stewart Glass Paint

I really loved using Martha’s glass paint. It’s permanent, dishwasher safe, and super easy to use, plus it comes in tons of different colors. You can draw your design on each glass quite easily. The directions say to let it air cure for 21 days OR bake in the oven.

To oven bake, place your painted mugs in a cold oven. Preheat to 350 degrees and set your timer for 30 minutes. You want to heat up the glasses slowly. After 30 minutes, simply turn off the oven and let cool completely. Set your glasses aside for another 72 hours and they are ready to go.
